TIDINGS - Term 3 Week 9 . 2022

Visions of God

This term the staff have been sharing “Visions of God” in our morning devotions.  With Jonno away, these are two small excerpts of recent devotions.  May you experience the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit these holidays.

The bible is full of visions of God, along with His beautiful creation and all the people that He brings across our path. When we know God and read His Word His vision is revealed, with the help of the Holy Spirit we can begin to see how God sees. How He sees others, how He sees us and how He sees our circumstances. It says in 1 Samuel 16 that the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.

When we seek God and seek to look through his eyes we begin to see with an eternal perspective. God desires all His children to believe in Him, know Him, love Him and spend eternity with Him! Because He loves us! John 3:17 says “For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him”. It’s the gospel message that enables us to live with an eternal perspective.

Having an eternal perspective helps me to keep my focus on what’s most important in life, it gives me peace and hope in a world that seems to move further and further away from the things of God and what His word says.’


‘God‘s heart's desire is that we know His love. We experience it. We feel it.  We know and feel it in our hearts, not just our heads. Our 

Heavenly Daddy wants us to be confident in His love, His ways, His leading.

God made us. He loves us. He has done everything to win our hearts to His. He wants us to be his friend and be in a relationship with him. Relationships grow when we hang out, communicate and learn about each other, and since God is our Creator, we only learn about our true identity and worth from Him.

The Bible tells us that Jesus often withdrew to a quiet place to pray. And I am not sure what they talked about but I have a feeling that Jesus often listened to His father and was reminded how much He was loved, that He was His precious Son in whom He takes great delight. And it was out of the overflow that Jesus was able to see others as His father did and love them with his Father’s heart.

My heart's desire is to love, to love God and love others but how can I love with His heart unless I’ve experienced it first and often myself? 

If we want to share the love of God with others, we need to first receive it ourselves. Let it drop from our heads to our hearts so that hopefully we too can be a glimpse of God to these precious little ones in our care and to those around us.’

Stage 5 PASS

Once again, Stage 5 PASS Elective have been hitting the great outdoors. Week 8 - we visited Ballina's very own Disc Golf Course - just a short stroll from the school. Students participated in a 3-person Ambrose event, with 2 groups finishing equal first on 2 over par. They then played an individual round with their friends. Week 9 - we went on a Bushwalk to Killen Falls, Tintenbar. We saw Emigrant Creek Dam, which is one of Ballina's water catchments. We then walked downstream to the viewing platform, and finally the base of the falls, where students explored in behind the falls. Students were encouraged to engage all of their senses on the walk.
